Dear Backer,

If you're looking for the ultimate mini titanium box, then you've just found it!

Now, before I continue, I have a confession:

I didn't plan to launch a Kickstarter project for what I'm about to reveal to you. This project is happening because my email inbox EXPLODED with emails from people DEMANDING I make this new design!

Let me explain...

3 weeks ago I revealed (on my blog) a new prototype Titanium box I had designed for fitting into "that little square pocket" you have on your jeans.

I didn't give that blog post much thought after publishing it.

But I woke up in the morning to discover the comments section of my website was on fire with people going crazy over this thing!

Long story short:

Turns out this unassuming little box - which I named the CandyCan™ - is a big hit.

I got straight to work and manged to make 20 of these CandyCans™  over the next week. I then put them on my website for sale. And...

I could not believe it. All 20 of these sold out in minutes.

But it gets worse...

I then received a boat load of emails from people who were pretty damn angry they had missed the chance to get their CandyCan™.

So, rather than make a few CandyCans™ here and there and leave loads of people frustrated - I thought offering a Kickstarter project made so much sense (after all, I had launched seventeen Kickstarter projects in the past!).

And so, 3 weeks after releasing that now infamous blog post, the CandyCan™ is now available to YOU...

Let's get into the details...

Precision CNC-Machined

The CandyCan™ is precision CNC machined from solid billets of Grade 5 Titanium.

The titanium "blanks" start out at around 133g (4.7oz). We then machine away 73% of the material to leave the weight of the CandyCan™ at 36g (1.2oz).

Here's a quick 57-second video of the making of the CandyCan™ (a lot of details have been left out - but you should get the idea)...

Dimensions

The CandyCan™ is designed to be pocket-friendly - so it is fairly compact.

The internal dimensions are as follows:

  • Length: 43mm (1.70")
  • Width: 25mm (1.0")
  • Height: 8.5mm (0.33")

Matte Finish

The CandyCan™ will receive my somewhat famous Matte surface finish.

Not only does our proprietary surface finishing process round the corners and edges of the CandyCan™  to make it feel amazing in your hand ...but the surface finish gives it a degree of scratch-resistance for everyday use.

Internal Texturing

I'll be honest here...

I could have left the inside of the CandyCan™ with a normal, flat look.

However, the obsessive-compulsive personality flaws I have just couldn't leave it alone and I just had to add some "little details" in there:

Friction Fit Lid

I have done an absolute TON of testing on the fitment of the lid on the CandyCan™.

The lid fits on with friction alone - there are no o-rings or clips or anything like that. This keeps it simple and reliable.

I'll let you in on a secret here:

We match each lid to a specific base to attain the perfect fit - not too loose and not too tight.

Not Just For Candy

You can put candy in your CandyCan™ - but I expect most people will be putting other things in it.

These can include medication, mints, coins, etc.

Made in New Zealand

The CandyCan™ is made entirely here in my workshop in New Zealand.

We import the raw titanium ourselves and we do the manufacturing all the way through to finished product.

Now, before I get into the Rewards available to you for this project...

I  think it’s important you know what it's like to support one of my  Kickstarter campaigns. Here’s just a small sample of the frequent emails  and messages I receive all the time from Backers and Customers:

Let’s get down to business...

The only way for me to get the CandyCan™ into your hands is by ensuring I have a minimum  quantity produced. The cost to produce each one of these CandyCans™ is significant (but you probably already knew that).

And so here’s where it gets good for you:

I’ve  put together some EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter Rewards for you. Take a look at the Rewards below and decide which one is going to work best for you.

Once  you’ve selected the Reward you want… simply scroll to the top of this  page and click on the corresponding Reward to make your pledge and “lock  in” your CandyCan™ RIGHT NOW...

One vitally important last point:

Backing this Kickstarter project is the ONLY way you can guarantee you get YOUR Titanium  CandyCan™.

To impossibly high standards,

Magnus

FAQ

How Do I Order Multiple Rewards?

It's EASY…

If  you want more than one of any Reward, then just add the additional  funds to your pledge and I'll sort out the rest for you after the  project ends.

(Note: You only need to pay for shipping once. If it's more then I pay the rest for you)

---

Why Is The Shipping Cost So High?

I only ship using a Fully Tracked Express Worldwide service (meaning you receive your Reward within 3 to 5 days of shipping wherever in the world you are).

I've used "cheaper" services in the past and had bad experiences (and so have Backers!) - so Express, although more costly, is the only way I can guarantee a trouble-free delivery of your Reward.

---

Why Do You Need Funding?

Two reasons:

#1 - I've had a lot of interest in the CandyCan™ and Kickstarter is the perfect platform to be able to do a larger run of them.

#2 - Doing a larger run of these requires a lot of titanium and so getting funding to order the raw materials is going to be hugely helpful.

Risks and challenges

I've launched more 17 Kickstarter projects now and starting to get the hang of timeframes and such. I'm fairly confident of being able to fulfill on time as with my previous projects.
